Re: "ata1 is slow to respond, please be patient" msg
I downloaded "debian-31r0a-amd64-binary-1.iso" which uses a
2.6.8-11-amd64 (if I'm not wrong). There is no linux26 boot option (only
linux and expert). Did you actually installed on a SATA drive?
PLEASE someone help me, I don't want to change distro!!!
What kernel are you using? I also have a asus k8n board with nvidia/sata. I
have never had a problem with it. At the moment I am running sarge (stable)
with the 2.6.8-2-k7 kernel, but I also have the amd64 sarge installed with a
2.6.8-?-k8 kernel and both work fine. When I booted the install cd I used the
"linux26" boot option.
